After working with Fortune-100 brands at VaynerMedia, serving as Gary Vaynerchuk’s assistant, and writing for UPROXX Media I longed for a more challenging career that would allow me to grow and evolve as a creative professional.

After some introductory, online JavaScript classes I was hooked; I knew software engineering was the career path for me. In September 2018, I enrolled in Fullstack Academy’s full-time Software Engineering Immersive program. Upon graduating from Fullstack in December 2018, I was offered a Teaching Fellowship role to help the next cohort of students in their journey to software engineering.
